ClariTest from GenPath: The Right Choice for Non-Invasive Prenatal Screening
ClariTest™ from GenPath harnesses the power of massively parallel sequencing to screen for fetal chromosomal abnormalities.ClariTest is a safe, non-invasive prenatal screen (NIPS), performed as early as 10 weeks of gestation from a simple blood draw, exhibiting outstanding sensitivity and specificity for the most common trisomies and specific microdeletion syndromes.
ClariTest screens for Microdeletion Syndromes
ClariTest can screen for five microdeletions that result in the following syndromes:
22q11.2 deletion syndrome (DiGeorge syndrome)
1p36 deletion syndrome
15q11.2 deletions (Angelman or Prader Willi syndrome)
Cri du chat syndrome (5p-)
Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome (4p-)
Collectively these microdeletions can affect 1 in 1000 pregnancies and have clinical features that can affect growth, intellectual ability and/or development.

 

There are two options of ClariTest available to order:
• ClariTest for aneuploidy screening: Screens for common chromosomal aneuploidies only
• ClariTest microdeletion panel: Screens for common chromosomal aneuploidies as well as five microdeletions.

Available to a Broad Patient Population

ClariTest is a safe option without the risks associated with invasive procedures such as amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling (CVS). It can be used to screen for common trisomies in singleton as well as twin pregnancies.
 

Quick, Accurate Reporting

Results for chromosomes 21, 18, 13 and sex chromosomes are reported as:
No Aneuploidy Detected
Aneuploidy Detected
Aneuploidy Suspected – Borderline Value (reported for chromosomes 21, 18 and 13 only)

Results for microdeletions are reported as:
No Microdeletions Detected
Abnormality Detected

*NIPS is a screening test only, patients receiving an Aneuploidy Detected or Aneuploidy Suspected result are advised to seek genetic counseling, as well as discuss further diagnostic testing options. Decisions regarding the pregnancy should NOT be made based on NIPS results only.

 

Bringing Clarity
to Your Patients

Other NIPS technologies result in a greater rate of no-calls (test failures), which may cause patient anxiety, and may result in unnecessary invasive procedures. ClariTest utilizes proven NGS technology to provide accurate NIPS results for patients.
Lowest Test Failures
In The Industry

ClariTest offers:
• Fewer no calls and redraws than other NIPS methodologies
• High sensitivity and specificity
• Results within 5-7 days
Fewer Unnecessary Invasive Procedures
Lowest test failures may result in:
• Reduced patient anxiety
• Less repeat testing
• Confidence in results the first time

 

We Offer Genetic Counseling Support
In the many stages of executing a prenatal testing program, genetic counseling plays a significant role in its success. The demand for genetic counseling and the need for support in understanding the risk for genetic syndromes will continue to increase as more genetic tests become available. The ingenuity behind GenPath’s Genetic Counseling program is designed to position our clients as leaders in providing patients with positive outcomes.

Every patient that receives ClariTest from GenPath has the option of scheduling an in-depth counseling session with one of our 100+ genetic counselors who will:

  • Further explain the patient’s risks
  • Help clarify what test results may mean for the patient and their family
  • Extend guidance for treatment decisions
  • Provide individualized follow-up recommendations
  • Provide resources that are pertinent to each patient’s situation
    • Literature about a diagnosis
    • Support group information
    • Contacts for other resources or healthcare providers that may be beneficial to the patient
